New launch PYC compliant

Jul 7, 2014 by Guest Writer

Oceanco’s newly delivered 300-foot (91.5m) M/Y Equanimity is the industry’s first superyacht designed and built to be fully Passenger Yacht Code (PYC) compliant.


“Working together with Lloyd’s Register and Cayman Islands Shipping Registry, we designed, developed, engineered and built a magnificent yacht, which will undoubtedly set new standards in the industry,” Oceanco CEO Marcel Onkenhout said.


The PYC was adopted in 2010 and applies to pleasure yachts of any size, in private or engaged in trade, which carry more than 12 but no more than 36 passengers and which do not carry cargo.


Other yachts are PYC compliant, but Equanimity is believed to be the first designed and built to the code. It provides luxury accommodation for 26 guests in flexibly configured staterooms and 28 crew.
